And Keith Olbermann’s next ex-employer will be… ESPN!

Welcome back
Your dreams were your ticket out
Welcome back
To that same old place that you laughed about…

NYT:

ESPN is expected to announce on Wednesday that the former network mainstay Keith Olbermann, who contentiously departed in 1997, will return to host a one-hour, nightly show for ESPN2 later this year, according to three executives with knowledge of the deal but not authorized to speak about it publicly…

Within ESPN, there was concern about asking Olbermann back because he left the network under emotionally charged circumstances and because it was feared by some that Olbermann had become too politicized as the host of his interim MSNBC program “Countdown,” which aired from 2003 through January 2011.

On his new show, Olbermann will be free to discuss matters other than sports, including pop culture and current events, but not politics, the two-year pact specifies.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!

Yeah, right. Olby won’t be talking politics. Hilarious!

What do you guys think? Six months? Six months before he burns that tenuously rebuilt bridge?

How long was he at Current TV? Will he make it that long? Oh, this is gonna be so great.
